    Hello all. I just got this router and I was disappointed to see that none of the custom firmwares support my router version yet (I have version 4 running firmware 4.20.6). Anyhow, I use a perl script to get a fake CLI interface to the WRT54G, and now i would like to enable telnet on the router so i can use telnet to mess with the router. Is this possible with the linksys firmware? If so how do i do it?

    i am not aware that there is a version 4 out. I know the latest one is version 3.1 How do you know yours is version 4?

    On the bottom of the router is a sticker that says "WRT54G V4". Like I said, it is apparently very new. Anyhow, now that I have a pseudo CLI connection to the device, and have enabled boot_wait, is there a simple way to get telnet working on it?
